Rating Title/Year Author
Toy Story 4 (2019) Jason Guerrasio The first half of the movie has a structured feel similar to the previous feature films, while the second half has the sharp action-adventure feel of the 22-minute TV specials and shorts that were produced after the release of "Toy Story 3." EDIT

Men in Black: International (2019) Jason Guerrasio Seven years after "Men in Black 3" hit the big screen, the franchise is back with a new cast and the playfulness that made the original with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones such a hit. EDIT

Dark Phoenix (2019) Jason Guerrasio When your superhero movie hinges on a finale set on a train, you kind of know you're doomed. EDIT
Posted Jun 5, 2019
Rocketman (2019) Jason Guerrasio With elaborate dance numbers that have a CGI-added "All That Jazz" feel, the movie is part rags-to-riches story and part rock concert. EDIT
Posted May 28, 2019
Aladdin (2019) Jason Guerrasio The biggest problem with the "Aladdin" remake is it's all over the place. Sometimes it's a Bollywood movie; sometimes it's "Hitch 2." EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
Booksmart (2019) Jason Guerrasio The movie doesn't just have its pulse on what today's youth are going through, it goes a step further: it is defining a generation. EDIT
Posted May 21, 2019
Avengers: Endgame (2019) Jason Guerrasio It fulfills everything that was set up in "Infinity War." EDIT
Posted Apr 23, 2019
Shazam! (2019) Jason Guerrasio 'Shazam!' is an irresistibly fun mix of 'Big,' 'The Goonies,' and a superhero movie EDIT
Posted Mar 23, 2019
Us (2019) Jason Guerrasio "Us" is fast-paced, gory, and once more shows the writing talents of Peele. EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2019
Captain Marvel (2019) Jason Guerrasio "Captain Marvel" is a lot of things: a buddy movie, a '90s nostalgic coming-of-age tale, a superhero origin story. This mix can be jarring at times, but it hits its stride when the movie tells a story that doesn't follow the blueprint of most MCU titles. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2019
D- Jupiter Ascending (2015) Kirsten Acuna The Wachowski siblings said they wanted to put together a bunch of genres, but in doing so, it's hard to figure out what this film wants to be. EDIT
Posted Dec 29, 2018
A- Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) Kirsten Acuna "The Force Awakens" is easily better than all the prequel films, however, I wouldn't rankit higher than anything in the original trilogy except maybe "Return of the Jedi." EDIT
Posted Dec 29, 2018
Vice (2018) Jason Guerrasio The entire movie messes with the audience as much as it wickedly satirizes the real-life characters it's portraying. EDIT
Posted Dec 17, 2018
Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Jason Guerrasio "Mary Poppins Returns" is one of the most enjoyable movie experiences you'll have over the holidays. EDIT
Posted Dec 12, 2018
Aquaman (2018) Jason Guerrasio This really is the quintessential 21st century popcorn movie. Almost every shot has CGI surrounding the actors, it has a diverse cast, and there's enough action in it that you'll never feel bored. EDIT
Posted Dec 11, 2018
6/10 Mary Queen of Scots (2018) Carrie Wittmer "Mary Queen of Scots" is both exactly what you'd expect from an Elizabethan era drama and exactly what you weren't expecting. EDIT
Posted Dec 10, 2018
6.5/10 A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding (2018) Carrie Wittmer "The Royal Wedding" is an addictive movie that will make you cancel your social life, because you must watch it every single night for two weeks. EDIT
Posted Nov 30, 2018
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Jason Guerrasio The best animated movie of the year. EDIT
Posted Nov 28, 2018
9/10 The Favourite (2018) Carrie Wittmer It's one of the best movies of the year, and it's a must-see in theaters for its incredible performances and artistic look from costumes to set to cinematography. It will hopefully get nominated for many Oscars. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2018
Creed II (2018) Jason Guerrasio Caple orchestrates a worthy sequel that still has those needed references to the "Rocky" franchise the fans crave, but makes a point to build up Adonis' own story. EDIT
Posted Nov 16, 2018
4.5/10 Outlaw King (2018) Carrie Wittmer Sadly, not even Pine's relentless charm and a brief, dimly lit and way over-hyped full-frontal scene can save the movie. EDIT
Posted Nov 9, 2018
B Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Kirsten Acuna It's difficult to not feel like a lot of "Batman v Superman" is an exhaustive - and expensive- effort from DC and Warner Bros. to catch up to Disney and Marvel's well-oiled cinematic universe. EDIT
Posted Oct 29, 2018
B+ Man of Steel (2013) Kirsten Acuna Being an alien among humans is scary and director Zack Snyder drives this point home showing the world through a young Kent's eyes. EDIT
Posted Oct 29, 2018
Venom (2018) Jason Guerrasio "Venom" is an entertaining comic book movie that at times is intentionally funny, while other non-funny moments miss the mark so badly that you can't help but laugh. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2018
Assassination Nation (2018) Jason Guerrasio This shock-and-awe indie genre movie from director Sam Levinson (son of Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson) is a blitz to the senses as it explores the dark side of teenage life in 2018 America. EDIT
Posted Sep 21, 2018
Lizzie (2018) Jason Guerrasio Kristen Stewart and Chloë Sevigny give strong performances and if period pieces are your thing, this one has fantastic production design of the era. EDIT
Posted Sep 20, 2018
First Man (2018) Jason Guerrasio It's not an astronaut movie in the vein of "The Right Stuff" or "Apollo 13," where the Space Race missions are the main focus... its focus is the life of Neil Armstrong, and as the movie shows, he's a man driven by a ghost from his past. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2018
Mid90s (2018) Jason Guerrasio It's one of those rare stories these days that looks at the beauty of life, rather than the parts that suck. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2018
Widows (2018) Jason Guerrasio It's hard to make a heist movie these days that doesn't feel like the countless others we've had thrown at us going as far back as the days of the film noir... Steve McQueen has caught lightning in a bottle. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2018
Halloween (2018) Jason Guerrasio For a project that has been riding high with anticipation from "Halloween" fans, this is no way to reward them. EDIT
Posted Sep 9, 2018
A Star Is Born (2018) Jason Guerrasio The hype for this movie is already through the roof, and all I can say is it lives up to it. EDIT
Posted Sep 8, 2018
Fahrenheit 11/9 (2018) Jason Guerrasio Michael Moore has been pushing his new documentary, "Fahrenheit 11/9," as a takedown of President Trump, in actuality the movie is a takedown of the entire political system. EDIT
Posted Sep 8, 2018
7.2/10 Christopher Robin (2018) Carrie Wittmer Milne's characters represent adult themes, and the screenplay reflects this: Eeyore's self-deprecation and depression, Piglet's crippling anxiety, Pooh's somehow wise idiocy, and Tigger's ego. EDIT
Posted Sep 7, 2018
7/10 Sierra Burgess Is a Loser (2018) Carrie Wittmer 'Sierra Burgess Is a Loser' is a sweet little movie that stands out among Netflix's others for its bold decision to put its female characters first. It's a movie about female friendship with a romance on the side. EDIT
Posted Sep 7, 2018
8/10 Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Carrie Wittmer 'Crazy Rich Asians' is a blast, and within minutes it will immerse you into its extraordinary extravagance and extraordinary talent. EDIT

Fantastic Four (2015) Joshua Rivera Make no mistake, -- the movie isn't all bad. Not in the least! EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2018
Mission: Impossible -- Fallout (2018) Jason Guerrasio The action director Christopher McQuarrie has masterfully crafted what I promise you will not be topped the rest of the year. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2018
Skyscraper (2018) Jason Guerrasio If you're looking for something that will keep you on the edge of your seat and might get you a little choked up by the end, this is the summer movie for you. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2018
Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018) Jason Guerrasio Like the first movie, director Peyton Reed ("Bring It On") mixes action and laughs to deliver one of the most enjoyable moviegoing experiences you'll have this summer. EDIT

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Jason Guerrasio Despite everything I didn't like about "Fallen Kingdom," I'll be first in line to see part three. EDIT
Posted Jun 20, 2018
Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Jason Guerrasio "Solo" is not an awful movie, it just has a few awful parts that feel uninspired. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2018
Deadpool 2 (2018) Jason Guerrasio "Deadpool 2" is as entertainingly distasteful (perhaps even more) than the first movie. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2018
Rampage (2018) Jason Guerrasio "Rampage" is a CGI wonder with little plot and a whole lot of awful cliches and bad dialogue. EDIT
Posted Apr 11, 2018
A Quiet Place (2018) Jason Guerrasio In an era when movie studios want projects that are big and loud, John Krasinski shows here that an extremely clever story can still work for audiences. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2018
Ready Player One (2018) Jason Guerrasio The most enjoyable Steven Spielberg movie in over 15 years EDIT
Posted Mar 27, 2018
A Wrinkle in Time (2018) Jason Guerrasio The scenes just drag on and seem to marvel at its special effects - which aren't that strong to begin with - instead of moving the story forward. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Black Panther (2018) Jason Guerrasio Like "Wonder Woman" last year, "Black Panther" is a project that fans have been waiting decades to see. And just like "Wonder Woman," it was worth the wait. EDIT
Posted Feb 6, 2018
The Tale (2018) Jason Guerrasio [Luara] Dern gives a powerhouse performance as a strong-willed woman who has to reexamine her life. Child actress Isabelle Nélisse plays 13-year-old Jennifer with a maturity that's astounding to watch. EDIT
Posted Jan 23, 2018
Mandy (2018) Jason Guerrasio "Mandy" is an acid trip that at times you'll wish would just stop. But when you ride it out, gives you the payoff of a 100% insane Nicolas Cage performance. EDIT
Posted Jan 22, 2018
All the Money in the World (2017) Jason Guerrasio Plummer's real-life Scrooge McDuck portrayal of Getty is the movie's highlight. EDIT
